    I'm a part time dock worker at UPS Freight. Been working 8 to 24 hours a week for the past 11 months and am about to get my benefits. In the past week we had a new driver transfer to our hub, we already have too many drivers, and if a driver does not have a route he can work the dock and push us out of our shift. I have not worked for the past week because drivers are working the dock. What can I do?

    Other than file for unemployment? There is not much that you can do.

    That's how it goes man. When layoffs start happening, the crap rolls down hill.

    This is probably your only "solution"

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    The only thing would be is someone under you working?

    If not then file for unemployment.

    I'd get a PT night job to tide you over until you're not getting laid off anymore.
